Not currently selling on Walmart but would like to list your inventory and manage orders via Monsoon? Follow the steps below:

 

Read our Walmart WebHelp here for data requirements


Apply for a Walmart account through the Monsoon partner link here.

  • When asked how many SKUs you have in inventory, state only the number of New condition SKUs

 

Import required data for each Monsoon SKU that you want to list to Walmart

  • A list of the required subcategory values can be found here under WalmartSubcategory
  • To prepare an inventory import file:
    • Export New condition inventory only
    • Preserve columns MonsoonOP, SKU, UPC, EAN, ISBN, Title, Weight, and WalmartSubcategory
    • Fill in the missing required values
    • Ensure that weights are numeric (remove ‘pounds’!)
    • Change the MonsoonOP values from ‘a’ to ‘m’
    • Import file into Monsoon 

 

Add Walmart account keys/credentials in Monsoon (this does not immediately enable the market)

  • The credentials can be found in Walmart’s Seller Center by clicking on the Gear icon -> Consumer IDs & Private Keys

 

Set Walmart listing rules and taxes in Monsoon


Consider adding a Walmart-specific pricing rule for price floor protection as Walmart requires free shipping

  • If using item level cost of goods, create a Walmart pricing rule where you use the Price Floor modifier feature to include your shipping cost in your price floor
  • If not using item-level cost of goods, ensure that your Walmart pricing rule includes your minimum item price + shipping as the price floor

 

Enable Walmart in Monsoon – this will start the communication between Monsoon and Walmart and eligible items will begin to list


Log into https://seller.walmart.com and complete each of the steps in the Onboarding Checklist:

  • Complete Registration
  • Complete your Partner Profile
  • Verify bank deposit
  • Complete Item & Order Testing

 

Click “Go Live” once you’ve completed the Onboarding Checklist

  • Walmart requires that 10% of your inventory or 1000 items (whichever is lower) are uploaded to Walmart before they will allow you to go live
